original Filipino title: SIGAW [The Echo]
also known as THE SCREAM

director: Yam Laranas
starring: Jomari Yllana Iza Calzado James Blanco RonnieLazaro Ella Guevara

Reminiscent of other Asian horror films (ie, THE EYE and DARK WATER), but this one strongly benefits from superb cinematography, quirky editing and impressive character development. Plus it's remarkably scary at the most unexpected moments. Filipino critic Albert Igesias listed this film as one of the 10 Best Horror Movies made in the Philippines. This is considered one of director Yam Laranas' most important film, second only to his ROAD (aka ABNORMAL).

Here is the story of a young man who moves into an old, desolate apartment building looking for peace and quiet. But it turns out that he can't find either due to the constant eruptions of domestic violence caused by neighbors down the hall. The wife and young daughter are routinely victimized and beaten by a jealous husband. Soon, the new tenant begins to hear strange noises and see strange sights in the dark hallway and... eventually inside his apartment. He tells his girlfriend about the apparitions. At first she is skeptic and suggests that he simply move out. But later, she discovers that something very odd is going on and they have both been swept into a terrifying situation.
